Pella® Technology Helps with Allergen Reduction in Your Home Our exclusive between-the-glass technology doesn’t only offer simple cleaning, it also sparks allergen reduction and keeps healthier air inside your Asheville home. According to statistics furnished by WebMD.com, allergies impacts 20% of all people in the U.S., and allergies are ranked 5th among the top chronic diseases. The approximate cost that allergen treatment adds to the U.S. health care system is approaching $8 billion. Nearly 4 million workdays are lost because of allergies, such as hay fever. Statistics suggest that over 90% of our time is spent indoors. Given the fact that we are a country of animal lovers (over 62% of households include a dog or cat), indoor pollution outpaces outdoor pollution by as much as 100 times, depending upon whether the resident smokes. Normal roomside blinds collect 10 times more of certain airborne allergens than Designer Series® windows with between-the-glass blinds1. Pella’s between-the-glass blinds or fabric shades are shielded from dust, pet dander, mold spores and other allergens, but they still deliver the protection from the sun that you desire with an easy-to-operate switch.
